We Strategize, Plan & Migrate
An overwhelming majority of business owners and representatives would be dealing with countless questions when attempting to plan for a technology migration. With a Free Consultation, get questions answered like:
What resources do we need?
A migration typically includes several SharePoint resources like architects, analysts, and designers. Figuring out which ones of these you need right now can prevent headaches later on. Once you have everyone on staff that needs to be, you can be sure that your migration will go smoothly since you won't have to waste time searching around for the right personnel at a later date.
How do I know everything will work the same or better than before?
We can ‘diagnose’ your SharePoint environment and ensure things will go as planned. In most cases, any potential performance issues will be apparent from the beginning. Keep in mind that SharePoint is a standard Microsoft platform and it's designed to integrate with popular office software solutions you're more than likely already working with. Chances are that the new platform will work better out of the box than your existing one even if we don’t go the extra mile and fully optimize it.
Are the URLs changing?
They or may not but we answer these questions prior to commencement. That will give you ample time to update them before any links become broken. You'll be able to change them across all of your content and applications before the final solution gets rolled out, which drastically reduces the risk and frustration that comes with finding a resource that suddenly isn't there any longer.
How do we support this after we move?
We have various engagement levels to be your SharePoint backstop post-migration. Many IT departments like to take ownership once everything has been set in stone. If that's the case, then you can feel free to use your new deployment as soon as it's finished. Those who want more in the way of support can inquire about a much more sophisticated plan. In fact, our teams can offer more than just technical help. We are prepared to offer training and SharePoint best practices that can impart the skills your crews need to efficiently use SharePoint and any other related tools your company may be rolling out.
